Our stay in Riga was only 48 hours, of which most of the daytime was work. After we arrived, we had only a short margin of time to eat supper and walk around the streets of the historic town. The next day, we had been invited by our Latvian colleagues to a restaurant located vis a-vis Riga’s National Opera building. We spend there around three hours mostly talking about politics and history. It was to be expected with war and political turmoil close to our countries.
Riga’s National Opera building as we could have enjoyed it while eating for supper. The building was designed by the German architect Ludwig Bohnstedt and opened its doors to the public in 1863.
